WhatsApp is a messaging app that is installed on almost every smartphone. WhatsApp updates are sent constantly to keep users engaged on the site.
However, before installing the new WhatsApp beta update for Android and iOS, users should be careful. The reason for this is that it can make the WhatsApp crash issue worse.
WhatsApp crashes can be caused by many factors, including the error. Are you aware of what you need to do if this happens? Are you aware of what you need to do to get WhatsApp working properly again?
WhatsApp released two new beta updates for Android and iOS this week, according to WABetaInfo. Update 18.104.22.168 for Android and version 22.214.171.124 for iOS.
“Unfortunately, both updates contain some critical bugs. About WhatsApp beta for iOS, after sending a new status update or sending messages in group chats, WhatsApp crashes instantly.
In the beta version of WhatsApp for Android, WhatsApp keeps crashing constantly on Android 12 for some users when using update 126.96.36.199, so they cannot use WhatsApp at the moment,” he said.
What do you do in these situations?
For iOS beta testers who want to keep their chat history, there is a quick fix: Users can use TestFlight > Downgrade to use a previous beta. Select WhatsApp Messenger (or WhatsApp Business) from the dropdown list. Previous Versions > Install an older trial version.
If you are using WhatsApp via the App Store, please backup your chat history before installing the new update so that you can reinstall WhatsApp and restore your chat history if something goes wrong.
Android users will have to manually delete the current beta and install the previous one via APKMirror, although a backup of their chat history is needed to restore it.
It’s worth noting that if you don’t have a backup but need to test something and don’t want to wait for a WhatsApp debug update, you can try downgrading the app using Android Debug Bridge on Android 10+ without losing app data (and no root rights) .
To do this, go to phone settings > developer options and enable USB debugging on your phone. If this setting is not displayed, tap “Build number” seven times under the About settings to make it visible.
Use a USB cable to connect your Android device to your computer. Download adb tools zip file and extract it to any folder on your computer. You also need to paste the previous version APK, which you got from APKMirror, in the same folder.
To make the procedure easier, rename the downloaded APK to app.apk. Right-click on the same folder and select “Open in Windows Terminal”. To check that your device is connected, launch adb devices and enter the following instructions to downgrade WhatsApp:
